The San Antonio Spurs looked outstanding in the first half of the 2011-12 season

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General by alleyoop on Tuesday 28 February 2012 at 10:17 am

The Spurs finished up the first half of the 2011-12 season with a 24-10 record which has them in first place in the Southwest Division. The Spurs are also #2 in the Western Conference right now, 3 games behind the Thunder. Here is a look at the players who made the biggest impact for the Spurs in the first half of the season in my opinion:

Team MVP: Tony Parker: 29-year old point guard Tony Parker played in 33 games (all starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 34.3 minutes, 19.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, 8.1 assists and 1.1 steals per game. Parker is scoring more while dishing out more assists than usual as he is playing the best basketball of his NBA career in 2011-12.

Biggest Surprise: Danny Green: 24-year old SG/SF Danny Green has really stepped up and helped fill in for injuries this year. He has played in 34 games (8 starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 23.1 minutes, 7.8 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. Green is playing the best basketball of his young career and the Spurs hope he keeps up the good work.

Biggest Disappointment: James Anderson: 22-year old SG/SF James Anderson has played pretty awful basketball so far this year. Anderson has played in 25 games (1 start) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 12.6 minutes, 4.1 points, 1.4 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game. He is only shooting 34.3% from the floor so far this year and that isn’t going to help him get more P.T. moving forward in 2011-12.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Game Recaps, General by alleyoop on Friday 24 February 2012 at 1:41 pm

The Spurs jumped out to a 65-39 lead at the half last night before cruising the rest of the way. DeJuan Blair had a breakout game as he led the way for the Spurs last night with 28 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and 1 blocked shot. Tim Duncan (18 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 blocked shots) and Richard Jefferson (17 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal) also had rock solid games for the Spurs last night. Tony Parker (16 points, 1 rebounds, 12 assists and 1 steal), Daniel Green (16 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 steals) and Matt Bonner (12 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists in 25 minutes on the floor) also pitched in with solid games last night. The Spurs are now 24-10 on the year.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Game Recaps, General by alleyoop on Wednesday 22 February 2012 at 9:18 am

The Spurs decided to rest Tony Parker and Tim Duncan last night, so they got thrashed!

The San Antonio Spurs will be without Manu Ginobili and Tiago Splitter for a couple weeks

Blogged under Big Spurs News, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by alleyoop on Tuesday 21 February 2012 at 10:40 am

The Spurs will be without 34-year old shooting guard Manu Ginobili and 27-year old center Tiago Splitter for the next couple of weeks due to injury. Ginobili has a strained oblique and Tiago Splitter has a calf injury. Ginobili has played in only 9 games (5 starts) for the Spurs and he is averaging 21.8 minutes, 12.1 points, 2.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game. Danny Green and Gary Neal will continue to split minutes at shooting guard until Ginobili is ready to return to action. Tiago Splitter has played in 31 games (0 starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 20.7 minutes, 9.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game. DeJuan Blair and Matt Bonner will see a spike in P.T. until Splitter is ready to return to action. The Spurs should be ok until Ginobili and Splitter return to action due to the incredible depth they have on the roster.

Danny Green has played decent basketball for the San Antonio Spurs this year

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Steppin Up by alleyoop on Saturday 18 February 2012 at 2:24 pm

24-year old SG/SF Danny Green’s career was hanging on by a thread before this year. He played in only 28 games in his first two seasons with the Cavs & Spurs. But, the injury to Manu Ginobili early on this year opened up P.T. for Green. Green has played in 30 games (4 starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 22.2 minutes, 7.4 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game. But, he is only shooting 39.9% from the floor and 36.5% from the three point line so far this year. With Ginobili back, Green is going to have to step up to keep getting around 20 minutes on the floor per night.
